The ZenPad has a 5 inch screen that has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It runs a 667MHz Samsung 6410 processor and has an 8GB storage capacity (the pre-installed microSD card). The supplied 8GB microSD card can be replaced with a larger capacity if needed…..
Based on our experience with the original zenPad one that we wouldn’t wish upon our worst enemy’s enemies we had a feeling that Enso’s latest crop of wares wouldn’t exactly be teeming with high quality components. One kindhearted tipster of ours managed to ignore our advice and order up a $199 zenPad 4, which is just another iPad KIRF for all intents and purposes.
There are three ZenPad models available which start at the basic model costing $155 that has all the features already mentioned along with WiFi and a six hour battery life. The next model up introduces a GPS unit to the device which adds another $25 to the price of the device. A 3G option is also available which ads a further $35 to the device taking the fully kitted out Enso ZenPad up to just $210.
With the ZenPad running the Android OS it opens up to a variety of applications that can be install through the Android Market. It isn’t clear if microSD is the only storage option as I assume there is some internal memory for installing apps on due to restrictions in Android about putting software on a removable media card.
Loaded with Android 2.1 and doused in mediocrity, this 10.2-inch tablet actually ships in a knockoff iPad box… one that proudly sports a perfectly random Internet Explorer icon on the front. Trust us, the laughs don’t end there. It was also said to be about half as responsive to key presses as the iPad, and when pressing down on the bezel, it actually leaves momentary indentations that require a tick to flatten back out. Classy. Head on past the break for a purely comedic video unboxing and preview if you’ve had a rough one, you owe it to yourself.
